The one for the road!
And we mean road…for Chevrolet’s Corvette is tailored-to-measure for real drivers…for those of you whose hearts find a singing lift in the challenge of a winding highway, the call of for blue horizons.
Stay away from this slim temptress unless there’s a spark in you that burns bright to the glove-fit of a bucket seat…to the competent feel of a big 17 ¼-inch steering wheel…to the tingling delight of a car that moves with the cat-quick response of a boxer.
Stay away if your pulse doesn’t stir to the silken potency of Corvette’s “Blue-Flame” engine, fueling 150 horses through triple carburetors…if your heart doesn’t soar to the speed-sculptured lines of its sleek plastic body…the rake of its fighter plane windshield.
But it you’re a real driver you can’t stay away. You’ll want to slice through a tight S-turn for the sheer joy of discovering what geared-to-the-road stability means. You’ll want to be behind the wheel when the light turns green…and the special Powerglide automatic transmission sends you winging, far ahead of the pack. You’ll want to tramp on those truck-size brakes for the wonderful feeling of security when the Corvette comes smoking down to zero m.p.h in a dead true line.
